Camera stolen from San Francisco recovered in Florida

“I located an NCIC hit for a Canon digital camera valued at over $1,000. The victim is a resident from Texas who was visiting San Francisco. His rental vehicle was broken into and numerous items of camera equipment were stolen. The victim completed an online police report and provided serial numbers for some of the stolen equipment. Once the match was found, a hold was placed on the stolen camera. The business was located in Lakeland, Florida! Following confirmation of ownership, the business agreed to release the property to the victim. Unfortunately, we were never able to contact the person who sold the stolen property or establish any other suspect information.”
